Description
Created for adventurers and armchair travelers alike, this photo narrative offers a true account of an ancient lost humanity of mysterious origin whose hidden legacy carved gigantic, towering stone monuments pointing to a message with predictions for the future. Through a perusal of the cultural, historical, and often magical lore associated with the ancient Peruvian mesa--woven into a tapestry of more than 300 dazzling images, illustrations, and walking maps--readers will come to understand the site's pivotal role as a repository of ancient knowledge. More than a traditional guide, this is a powerful handbook, facilitating the traveler intent upon achieving an intimate and transformational experience and showing how a simple change in one's perspective can open an entirely new chapter in the way human history is perceived. Boston University professor of geophysics, Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., provides a comprehensive introduction to the work, while contributions from a variety of archaeologists, journalists, scholars, and fellow travelers illuminate the deeper mysteries of Markawasi. A section of travel tips, a camping guide, and general advice on high-altitude travel provide hints for those interested in making the journey.
